South Carolina-based extreme technical death metallers NILE have finished recording their new album and are scheduled to begin mixing the effort this weekend. The band’s guitarist/vocalist Karl Sanders previously stated about NILE‘s new material, “Some of the drumming on this record will be boggling people’s minds for years to come.”
“Those Whom The Gods Detest”, the latest album from NILE, sold 3,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 160 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 3 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Those Whom The Gods Detest” was produced and mixed by Neil Kernon (NEVERMORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, QUEENSRŸCHE), along with a drum-recording job by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, VITAL REMAINS, GOATWHORE).
